Quilts on a Road Trip continued!

Another new quilt that came on our road trip,

was a ufo that was started some time ago and never completed

for some now forgotten unknown reason.

Now its finished, quilted and bound and is now one of my many favourites.

We came across these wonderful old disused bridges,

lovely setting by the very low river, great for a quilt photos.

 

 

On further inspection, maybe not!

Now totally fenced off, to dangerous for anybody.

 

 

Choose the veranda of this very fitting old building instead.

Pattern now added to the pattern page.

Class Catch- up!

The gorgeous ladies in my Baltimore Album class at

The Sewing Bee Cafe have been busy

completing their blocks before the next class.

Looking forward to seeing all of their blocks come

together in the next couple of months.

 

 

As have the ladies in my Primrose Manor class,

also at The Sewing Bee Cafe. I love that there is such

diversity of fabrics in both classes.

Playing Catch-up!

Lately I’ve been a slack posting on my blog.

Thinking that I had posted on Instagram as well as my blog,

but actually only posting on Instagram.

Over the next few days (or weeks) I will

endeavour to catch up with all that’s been happening.

 

 

I’m thrilled and delighted to receive first prize for my Primrose Manor,

at Victorian Quilters Showcase at the Melbourne Quilt and Craft Fair.

 

 

Some closeups of the 3d flowers, gorgeous fabrics and quilting.

 

 

Congratulations to all who entered theirs quilts into Showcase.

You are all winners!

Stitching Day/Sewing Bee Cafe!

On a cold winters day we set up

 for the stitching day with The Sewing Bee Cafe.

Project for the day was my Clementine bag available in 2 colourways.

No time for me to take pics during the day,

these next pics are courtesy of The Sewing Bee Cafe.

All of these lovely ladies busy with

English Paper Piecing and making 3D flowers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A very generous gift of this bundle of fabrics,

matches perfectly with others from my stash.

Thank you to every one who attended and

Debbie & Sonia for making this a fun memorable day.

Easter weekend!

 

Easter on the Ninety Mile Beach this year started

with some not so good weather, overcast, windy

and rough seas. Although we love this beach

in all weather.

 

What a difference a day makes,

clear skies, calm water and not another person in sight.

 

A visit to the newly opened

Lily Lane Too was in order to purchase some needed supplies.


 

 

To complete my stack of stars.
